We added some signal flags to the cottage in July. Friends from way, way back visited. The gardens made it through a significant drought. Drones become an everyday event it seemed. The July open house was a very busy fun day as we did it a little differently, emphasizing the runway exhibit over the artifacts in the Cottage.

A great event in June as the Scituate Historical Society unveiled a memorial stone commemorating the work of the Coast Guard and the volunteer radio crew on the night the Etrusco came ashore. This memorial also gave the Society a chance to share a taste of the story of WRUL. This project was championed by the family of Jim Howard, Lynne and Gabe Crocker particularly, helped by Jim's good friend Bob Marchese. Funding came from Jim's friends at the direction of his family at his passing. The pictures show some of the steps in the process. More than 130 attended the unveiling and speakers included Tom Hall, Jim Keefe, Arnold Goulston, David Ball and Jeff Howard.
